I'm looking to buy a quality short USB C cable for use in my car with Android Auto. Looking for something considerably shorter than the standard cables that come with phones.


I've heard that all USB C cables are not equal, so don't want to take a chance without recommendation.


Prefer to buy from NZ supplier, but open to offshore.

Covery cables on Amazon are good quality, and the shortest in this set is 30cm.

Personally i get all my usb C cables from amazon.




Simply put, the nz market does not have quality cables in it that have been tested to have the correct resistors quality for higher wattage etc.

As mentioned previously on Geekzone, check out reviews by Benson Leung. I bought all of mine from Amazon.
